Surrounded by stunning water views and a gorgeous natural setting along Long Island Sound, a Darien, Connecticut, property now on the market with William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty makes for an ideal artist’s retreat. In fact, the property was designed with the artist in mind, including a spectacular two-story studio that offers an inspirational setting for any number of artistic pursuits. The creative mind can also take advantage of the endless possibilities suggested by the extraordinarily exquisite setting, and shape the property itself into a personal waterfront sanctuary.
Surrounded by major waterside estates while providing a sense of total privacy, the property is situated in a prestigious Sound-front association. The secluded grounds provide a breathtaking backdrop for the residence, featuring a rare, private sandy beach on the Sound with endless views over the blue waters. A magnificent park-like acre lined with stately low walls is adorned with mature, specimen plantings and features well-groomed green lawns bordered by a lovely treed landscape. A beautiful outdoor terrace provides another vantage from which to enjoy the serene views.
Those views continue throughout many of the 16 rooms within the spacious brick and shingle residence. Offering 8,274 square feet of living space with a total of five bedrooms and six and a half baths, this superb home constructed in 1963 offers the opportunity for a truly exceptional lifestyle. With three fireplaces, vaulted ceilings and skylights, and alternating hardwood, tiled and carpeted flooring, the home includes a living area with a curved wall of windows looking out to the water, a dining area opening to the terrace, and a charming kitchen with center island. The home also has two master suites with an additional guest suite, two-bedroom staff quarters and professional office space. Completing the offering, additional amenities include a security system, sprinkler system, central air and an attached garage.
The home is located at 19 Contentment Island Road in Tokeneke, one of Darien’s most sought-after neighborhoods, known for its rolling hills, winding roads, pastoral scenery and of course, the ever-enduring water views. In addition, the property is enhanced by the town’s numerous Gold Coast amenities, including its magnificent parks, beaches and country clubs as well as its top-rated public school system. For $6,995,000, the discerning buyer now has the chance to experience all of the benefits of this desirable community, from an inspiring and one-of-a-kind piece of property.
